Thanks. I figured once I realized it still had a add to cart button.

Melvins merch site says pink vinyl already sold out? Hoping it just hasn’t went up yet. This is the first I’ve seen of it.

Looks like shit. I bet you guys pay out the nose for it though  :lol:

Yea I’m usually a sucker for those damn bundles but it’s gonna have to come with some other really cool shit for me to fork out some cash for That. I agree. Looks like total shit. Hell they should have just sold em as normal toras. Unless they just have some of The books left over.

30 straight minutes of hitting the refresh button finally paid off.
How long would you have gone on for?
I was just about to give up, haha. I had just gotten home from working 12 hrs and I was seeing double at that point. I figured they got the time wrong and was gonna try the next hr.
I wonder if the people at Blixt were high on sherry and mince pies at that point and either forgot or were having a little chuckle at our expense. There were only 13 of these; I was surprised it didn't sell out in less than a minute.

I’m surprised too. I thought the price on this one was pretty fair. I think some people look at the price and see a couple hundred and are automatically out haha. With there only being 13 I bet some people didn’t even try lol.

Someone was definitely slacking. That’s the first time I think that’s happened with their merch site.

I’d like to see Big Melvins with Mark D on second guitar. Can you imagine the record they could write if they could just get along. 😂

Anyone know who’s doing the poster for the 40 watt tomorrow in Athens?

I have a SEALED Cassette of Houdini (It's not a coloured shell it's plain black) if anyone wants to Swap or trade Cassette I'm looking for a Bullhead Cassette tape in VG or NM condition if not sealed at least. If you have anything else you might think of that's worth a trade or of interest let me know.

I think I may have an extra bullhead. I’ll check once I’m back home tomorrow. I might be interested in a trade.

My good buddy who lives in Ithaca just texted me ...

"Whoa! Just realized Melvins/Red Kross are playing Syracuse tonight! Gotta go!"

hahaha ... hope he has fun

I was there last night. Awesome show!

First time seeing them in Syracuse... (I always go to Boston or NYC depending on what night the show falls on.)

Venue was pretty small which was great and it seemed to be only about 1/2-3/4 full  :shock:

Was able to get right up front and watch comfortably without much nonsense.

I truly love the set list they are playing right now. So freaking good..

What’s left on the merch table as far as records go? I’ve heard a lot has sold out.  I haven’t seen a picture lately. I’m seeing them next week. Hoping they restock on some stuff in NC or GA

Jesus christ $50 for a fuckin EP on vinyl.

Heard Haze on a podcast talking about people complaining about the prices of this kind of stuff. I’m paraphrasing but he basically said that normally just a print would cost that much and you’re getting a record to top it off. These are considered boutique items and if you want it you’re gonna pay for it.  Not to mention these aren’t normal printed sleeves, they are screen printed if I’m correct. As he said in the Melvins documentary, these are boutique items for fans who are willing to pay that much.

I get all that but to me this is taking the piss it's just gouging the fuck out of their diehard fans. This kind of shit wouldn't fly over here if people heard that a band was slapping a few cover songs on a 7" doing a "fancy" sleeve and charging the equivalent of around $75 AU they would cop so much shit and rightfully so.

I mean at least the band could sign the damn things or throw in a full length album on CD inside too.

Sounds like you want the fancy version for a non fancy price. It’s a 10” record not a 7”. Art was made by a hand carved linocut. If you’re not familiar Maybe you should look up what that is and how time consuming it is. And there’s only 400 of em. These aren’t mass produced run of mill eps,  That’s why they don’t have run of the mill prices. If that still doesn’t make sense , then just don’t buy it. Could they be a little cheaper ...probably. But no one buys music anymore. Merch is really the only way bands can make money now. That and touring. Good for them for figuring out a way to keep doing what they are doing and staying afloat when in a time where bands are hanging it up because of not making money. If they didn’t do as well in merch I wonder if they would tour as much as they do?

I agree it would be nice for them to have a bandcamp for all the singles and rare stuff.  That or a cheapie cd for every ep. seems like they usually end up on YouTube at some point or another though
